Green Glue

Green Glue Compound is a unique damping product that is ideal for new construction and renovation projects. It is the most popular and cost-effective soundproofing material on the market. The compound’s unique properties act as a damping material to dissipate the vibrations caused by sound waves as they travel through ceilings, walls and floors.

Features

Economical
Green Glue is significantly lower in applied cost than competitive products, and gets the best acoustic performance out of the standard building materials (drywall, lumber, etc) that it’s applied to.

Proven Effectiveness
Independent lab tests prove that using Green Glue dissipates up to 90 percent of noise. Unlike other soundproofing products, Green Glue  is ideal for dissipating low frequency noise common with home entertainment and theater systems.

Simple to Use
Whether you’re an experienced construction professional or a handy DIY kind of person, using Green Glue Compound is a cinch. All you need is a standard quart-sized calking gun to apply a layer of compound between two pieces of drywall or other construction material. It also cleans up easily with just soap and water.

Applies in just minutes
It takes just a few minutes to apply Green Glue Compound to an average piece of drywall (or other rigid construction material). It’s easy to soundproof a room in one day, or less. For best results, cure time is seven days, and the Compound reaches its peak performance 30 days after application.
